Our form of intelligence isn't necessarily the go-to form of survival because we would see a lot more of it from other species if that were the case.
Taking that into consideration and using that as a basis on life in the universe I would believe the possibilities would be slim and then taking into
consideration, as well, the likeliness of a species becoming so advanced they become space travel capable -- that's even more slim -- very slim, in
I'm not sure if I'm following what you're trying to say there.
If we are indeed the apex species on planet Earth then why would we necessarily see "a lot more" of "our form of intelligence" here?
Perhaps it's because we are significantly different that we have managed to become the apex species? Vive La Difference!
Also, I'm not sure how we can "use that as a basis on life in the universe"? As far as I know, we have absolutely no concrete idea how life has
evolved elsewhere in the universe?? Unless you know different?
If you look at the amazing variety of life forms that already exist on this tiny planet, and then consider the myriad of different possible conditions
that could exist, on an almost infinite number of planets to enable life elsewhere in the universe, it is practically a mathematical certainty that
not only life, but advanced intelligent life must be out there somewhere.
(Almost infinite number of planets = Almost infinite number of different conditions for sustaining life = Almost infinite possibility that multiple
Could they have visited Earth?
Perhaps not, by our limited understanding of Physics, Propulsion, Space/Time etc. But we cannot possibly know or even begin to understand what
capabilities another advanced civilisation may have achieved, having developed independently from us. What I mean is - IF they exist, they are
probably many many light years away from us, and therefore unlikely to be able to easily travel here (by our understanding and current knowledge) BUT
perhaps they have discovered ways of "bending" our rules? Maybe they can manipulate space/time/dimensions?
That's why I believe that there is an almost infinite chance of advanced alien (extra-terrestrial) life being out there,
and that they could
have visited us.
Sorry if that doesn't make sense!!! I've had to simplify it quite a bit to fit in one short post!
